Islamic State Part Of Western Plot Against Islam, Says Chechen Leader

The head of the Chechen Republic, Ramzan Kadyrov, has accused the West of using the Islamic State (IS) group as part of a covert war against Islam.

The Chechen leader expressed these fears of “Wahhabism” on February 5 in remarks on his Instagram account, which has become his preferred way of communicating with the public.

Kadyrov’s latest remarks are the culmination of what has been a series of increasingly extreme accusations against the United States and its Western allies regarding the extremist Sunni IS group.
